WHAT YOU'RE GETTING: Corned beef hash
You cannot talk about Clary’s without mentioning Clint Eastwood, which, perhaps, isn’t the best start to breakfast (or maybe it is?). But the cafe, which reached national acclaim thanks to its role in John Beredt’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and Eastwood’s film adaptation, was famous in Savannah decades before. Its reputation in the film as a local hangout for snagging the gossip is true, albeit there’s a lot more tourist traffic these days. While you may not know who the regulars are discussing, you can at least pretend to be part of the Southern town while housing the giant plate of corned beef hash, which is meal enough on its own, and that’s before you get to the two eggs, grits, and a biscuit. Get your eggs fried, let the rich yolks mix with the salty, malty, oniony goodness of a forkful of hash, and layer it up on the biscuit. You may not be able to eat again all day, but maybe that’s the point.
